Drywall Installation and Repair Services
Drywall installation can be a lifesaver for the modern homeowner. It’s lightweight, can be cut to your exact requirements, and is a lot easier and less expensive to install than bricks and mortar.
It is also resistant to fire because it is made of a mineral called gypsum, making it a useful safety measure as well.
Patching, Installing, and Taping Drywall
Our drywall services can save you a lot of time and effort. Whether you need some basic maintenance or a full installation, our drywall services cover a full range of areas. But if you're into do-it-yourself and want to give it a go, here are some helpful tips to get you started.
Drywall is quite durable, but not immune to dents, chips, or punctures. Over time, it might start looking bad and need patching. You can do this quite simply by buying a repair (patch) kit from
a hardware store.
Patching entails placing a piece of mesh tape over the hole or dent and then covering it with joint compound. Be prepared to spend some time on this project. It will take a few layers of compound to smooth out the wall and cover up the mesh.
Drywall installation is something that you are better off leaving to the experts. It's a little more complicated than just putting it up and nailing it into the wall as the boards are heavy.
You'll need to use the right screws to ensure that the new wall stays put. You also need to be careful about the placement of any nails.
Taping is the last stage of the process. Once you've put in the boards, you'll need to apply tape along the edges and then prep everything for the layer of mud to make the wall glossy and smooth, and it's essential to get an even surface.
